Responses to Emails I Usually Ignore

I enjoy interacting with readers who have questions or comments on my articles.  I’ve benefited greatly from this joint pursuit of good ideas about investing and generally handling money well.  Here are some replies to emails I usually ignore.

Dear Darcey,

I received your exciting “cooperation offer” to post ads on my website disguised as genuine articles.  I’m so grateful that I’d like to make a similar offer.  Please let me know when you’re available for me to drop by your home to dump garbage in your living room.

Sincerely,

Michael

Dear George,

Please excuse the delay in my reply, but I wanted to wait a few months to see how your prediction of a “permanent” increase in bitcoin prices would work out.  So far, the answer appears to be “not very well.”  This setback has undermined my confidence in your more recent predictions.  I’m starting to think I can’t trust free unsolicited market predictions as a way to get rich.

Sincerely,

Michael

Dear Julia,

Your client does indeed sound like a very important business in the casino and betting industry.  My blog states that I don’t take fake articles, but you saw through that and asked how much I charge.  For a big player as important as your client is, let’s make it a round million.

  1. Hi Michael, what are your thoughts on a “Participating Dividend-paying Whole Life Insurance” policy?
    This is also in conjunction with R. Nelson Nash’s Infinite Banking Concept (IBC). The whole life insurance is only a tool that enables the concept of Being your own banker. Definitely going to be digging a bit deeper on this but from initial research does appear legit? Does it make any financial sense though for a aspiring FIRE?

    1. Hi RPR,

      I haven't looked into every whole life product, but I haven't liked any of the ones I've looked into. Term life insurance makes sense for those who has people depending on their income. Beyond that, I've only seen niche situations where other insurance products make sense.

  2. Great responses Michael. :) Those ad companies are getting so desperate.
